Our Mission

The Laurel Ballet Academy strives to teach technique with excellence while building confidence, self-esteem, and a heart of worship in each dancer. We believe dance can be a vehicle through which students can encounter Jesus in a life-changing and transformative way. The goal of Laurel Ballet Academy is to not only conduct classes in a way that honors the Lord, but to also provide students with an opportunity to prepare themselves with prayer and to dance choreography with a Christian expression as well as the classical combinations that are vital to good dance training. We believe that proper dance technique can be taught in a fun and meaningful way that encourages not only outward strength, but also inward growth in the development of confidence and discipline. We are thankful to have an opportunity to invest in the lives of Laurel’s young dancers and look forward to a great year filled with many blessings!
